I'm a week old

So, this post is a little late, and little Collin is actually now a week and a half old. I thought I would post some updated pictures. In Collin's first week, his Grandma Johnson was down to help his mommy learn how to be a mom, but he makes it pretty easy. The first night he didn't sleep but since then he has been pretty good. In fact, last night he went to sleep at 1020, woke up at 120 and then mommy went to wake him up at 5 to eat before she went to the gym. I love this picture of him because it shows his big eyes.
This is the "classic" Collin face. He was four days old when this was taken.

Ryan and I took a new family picture this last Sunday so we could update our family picture. I actually look half decent, and not like a scary mommy. Collin probably didn't even recognize me with my hair actually done :)

Mommy and Collin at home.

My embilical cord stump fell off this week! I was so excited to show everyone and take a picture. His belly button looks huge compared to his tummy but I'm sure he will grow into it.
Other than that, in his first week of life, Collin DOES NOT like having his clothes changed, loves his car seat, and pees through his clothes a lot, minus last night, which was the first night mommy didn't have to change his clothes. YEAH!

Alisa,
You do look fabulous and your baby is too, too adorable. Seriously, you are going to the gym... at 5 AM?!?! I plan on staying on the couch as much as possible the first 2 weeks...at least! :) You are so amazing and I couldn't be happier for you and your growing family!!!

It looks like superbaby has a supermommy! I am so impressed (but not really surprised) that you are getting up so early to work out. I remember you were always an early riser. Be sure to make time to rest, though! :) Collin is sooooo adorable!

Thanks for the mailing address :) !!

That is weird that you haven't gotten any of my emails ... I think I sent at least 3 and I was using the account you left on my blog. Strange?!?

Have a happy day :) !!
